"The Battle of China," Chapter VI of Frank Capra's "Why We Fight"
series, explains why the Empire of Japan possessed such a strong
interest in ruling the disparate lands of China. In an attempt to break
the will of the Chinese people in one massive assault, Japan invades
Nanking and massacres forty thousand civilians. The attack results in
an opposite effect, galvanizing the Chinese resistance and unifying the
separate lands into a single Chinese identity. While the Japanese take
control of all Chinese ports, hoping to cut off all resources from its
victim, China's allies effectuate an engineering miracle. They
construct the seven hundred mile long Burma Road over the mountains of
Myanmar, and set up a constant caravan of trucks to ship food and
materiel to the Chinese armies, keeping them alive. Frustrated by their
inability to conquer China, the Japanese turn their attention to the
islands of the Pacific, and the United States.

Subject: Terrific Film!
We all know of the fight against the Nazi peril in Europe and Africa, as well as on the high seas. We know of the Russian peoples' stand against Hitler's armies and the importance of that resistance to Hitler's defeat. But how many of us realize the scope and significance of the Chinese contribution to the defeat of the Japanese?

This film tells a story that too few Americans knew and too many have forgotten.
